Thanks for the extensive feedback, dooglus!

I hope it wasn't too much for you.

I guess it could come across as me giving you a hard time, but I just thought it would perhaps be useful if I just told you everything I thought could use some attention.

Overall I like the site and how it works.

Currently the only way to bring more to the table is to click "leave". Something like an "Add chips" button, maybe even just renaming it?

Blackjack is a funny game, and seems to have very high variance.  Winning or losing streaks can last for long periods of time, even though the shuffles are random.

I just had 3 blackjacks in a row at Strike Sapphire:

Quote
Hand # LS2-207083
dooglus wins $0.25 AD,JD

Hand # LS2-207084
dooglus wins $0.25 JS,AC

Hand # LS2-207085
dooglus wins $0.25 JD,AC

If each is a one in 21 chance, then that's a 1 in over 9000 shot!

All three were Ace + Jack.  That's even less likely, by a factor of 64.  That makes it about a one in a half-million shot.

"Leave" doesn't seem right at all the more I think about it. When you click it it welcomes you, which is odd for a leave button. And it's normal function is for adding chips.

I think I got an 11, doubled it, got to 16 and lost.  But that's from memory.  I've closed the table already.  I know, now it's amazingly unlikely, huh?  Wink

No, I definitely appreciate the feedback, and you weren't harsh at all Cheesy Even if you were harsh, it would still be really valuable! I need to know what problems people are having so I can fix them, and having you tell me about them directly is the best way.

You can actually add balance without leaving the table by clicking on your current balance in the lower-left of the table, just above the "Split" button. The leave buttons does behave differently in that it cashes out all your chips from the table and allows you to create a new table. I agree that this could be a bit more clear though, I'll see what I can do... Thanks!

I found an internal server error.

Open the game in two windows, buyin in both of them, leave in one, make a bet in the remaining one.

Ah, I saw those errors coming through - I wondered what was causing them Cheesy I'll fix this shortly, in the meantime I'll add another BTC to your account for helping me out. Keep 'em coming!

I was playing around on your site earlier, nicely done Smiley

One thing that was not obvious for me was how to withdraw: after I've won I wanted to stop playing and withdraw my bitcoins. I clicked on the withdraw link at the bottom of the page and there my bitcoins were shown under "Total balance" and "In-game balance", but not under "Available for withdrawal."

It took me a little bit to figure out I had to go back to the table and click there on leave.

Also, (just something small): if you're on the withdraw screen and click again on the link to withdraw at the bottom of the page, the "Back"- link just goes back to the withdraw screen. I would think that from the withdraw screen if you click on back you always go back to the table.

Yeah, this flow has always bugged be somewhat too. I am thinking of allowing users to leave tables from the withdrawal page which would hopefully alleviate this. Thanks for the heads-up - I'll prioritize this change!

Ah, yeah, that is kinda wonky. I just changed it so that back button always goes back to the blackjack game. Thanks!

Leave is disabled during a hand though so maybe you should just put the amount on the table and a link back to the table. Or I suppose check to see if a hand is in progress and make it a "back to table" button if so and a "leave table" button otherwise.

Good call! It's never possible to cash-out a table mid-hand, so having the "Go to game" link is necessary.

Thanks for the feedback guys - this feature is now live! It should be even easier to withdraw your whole balance now.

Thanks to everyone that has played and offered me feedback in the last 2 weeks!

We've officially hit a milestone hand: 50,000 real bitcoin blackjack hands have been played since launch! In celebration, we gave away some btc to all the players that were playing when the milestone occurred.

If you were playing anytime yesterday, you probably got a boost to your balance!

That's pretty impressive.  50k hands in how many days?  If it's since you posted about your site in this thread, that's about 1 hand every 20 seconds, 24/7.

I announced it on reddit's /r/bitcoin a few days before announcing it here. So the official launch was on June 5th - 18 days ago. That's still an average of one hand every 31 seconds, which is a pretty good start Cheesy

Big news from bitZino today!

Through the power of cryptography, we are now Provably Fair!

We utilize a novel cryptographic approach which ensure that neither the house, nor the player can possibly know the shuffle of a deck until the moment the deck is dealt. Read about how we do it on our website, or dive into all the in-depth technical details on our newly launched bitZino TechBlog. As part of this launch, we've also increased the maximum bet on our site to 10 BTC.

So, come enjoy the game, and as always, leave any feedback for me here! I'm incredibly receptive to any suggestions or input the community has.
